Who’s your favorite Mozart singer?
This is a really tough one, but I have to go with Renee Fleming. Her Countess and Donna Anna are flawless. I am so moved by her “Porgi amor” in particular. I’m really upset that she doesn’t sing Mozart anymore, because her voice and temperament are so well-suited to it. I don’t believe that anyone can out-grow Mozart. You can only improve at it.

It’s so funny, you go to acting school thinking you’re going to learn how to be other people, but really it taught me how to be myself. Because it’s in understanding yourself deeply that you can lend yourself to another person’s circumstances and another person’s experience.
No problem! Added :)
